Natural Beauty Yearbook 2014 Who’s Who Top 25

Last Tuesday night I went to the launch party of the Natural Beauty Yearbook 2014 (I’ve been away for work hence my late post!) Melvita hosted the event at Kensington Whole Foods Market, my second favourite shop! The party is always a great opportunity to catch up with friends, it is also when the much anticipated who’s who in natural beauty Top 25 personalities are announced. The top 25 are voted for by others in the industry, and are a mix of brand owners, bloggers, PR’s and journalists.
